YSW for Kids and Teens
This year the workshops specially suited for kids and teens are the Yiddish children’s song workshop and the Youth Klezmer Band. In addition, all Yiddish Summer workshops are open for teens! For those of you under 18, we are offering a bargain price. Feel free also to visit any of our free taster courses during the festival week. If you’re not sure which workshop is right for you, feel free to call us at +49 (0) 3643-858310, or send an email with your question to the workshop coordinator. For descriptions of the individual workshops, click here. At Yiddish Summer Weimar, every day of the summer break is an opportunity to discover a different aspect of Yiddish music and culture. We look forward to seeing you!
